NY State Senator Files Bill Mandating Parents Take Parenting Classes

nanny state

So, let me get this straight…. the left would like Republicans to stay out of their bodies when it comes to abortion and the right to choose, but they want to mandate how you raise the child after it’s born? Gotcha.

New York state Sen. Ruben Diaz Jr. introduced a bill that would require parents of elementary school children to attend a minimum of four parent support classes. If parents don’t go, 6th graders won’t move onto 7th grade.

Leslie Venokur, the co-founder of Big City Moms, called the idea “crazy” and “insane.” She said that what is most concerning that the education commissioner and Board of Regents would develop the parenting guidelines. She said the Regents should “stick to what they’re good at which is teaching kids and staying away from the parents.”

The bill states one of the courses would be related to physical, emotional, and sexual abuse of children.

Employers would be required to provide one day a year of paid leave so working parents can attend classes.

Wow. Just, wow. Liberalism is truly a mental disorder.
